87 in the 18th and 108 in the 1/4 you are loosing 2.5 MPH in the last half of the run.
You car should be MPHing right at 110.5 MPH, as it is now.

What is the 1/8th et and 1/4 et from the same slips. (a few samples)

Nitrous and the converter stall: you re much better off with the 4200stall, (unless its wounded, needs servicing) especially with nitrous.

There may be other cars that are running 11's with a 3.70 gear but they are makeing a lot more horsepower and the car is likely lighter than your car is.

start by weighting your car, on a accurate scale, with you in it.

Are your heads the newer, revised port Platinum series 200cc heads? They are not the same as the conventional older Iron Eagle head.
Stock, modified, flow test?

you need to get your MPH way way up. (horsepower)

What was going on ith the car that the big cam didn;t work? Besides "it was hard to tune"
couple sample ET slips from that.

Nitrous is just the icing on the cake. You want to get the car to run like it should , on the motor.
Cutlass 's weight more than 3200 # with driver. The plain jane Malibu "Iraq-y- taxi is light. The Cutlass and Regal, not so much.
